Braised Red Cabbage

This recipe is compliments of the Internet and is included here to accompany meals with a German type of cuisine. It is a good choice to use with Poor Manís Schnitzel and buttered noodles or spatzle to make a complete meal. I have yet to try it but it looks pretty good and I will report back with results.


1 tablespoon olive oil

2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 small to medium small head of red cabbage, thinly sliced

1/4 cup apple cider

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup red wine vinegar


Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a 4 quart pot and sauté the onions until soft.

Add the cinnamon, cloves, and cumin and cook for 30 seconds.

Mix in the cabbage and sauté for 5 minutes, until wilted.

Add the cider, sugar, and vinegar. Cover and braise over low heat until the cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes.

Serve warm.
